Product Information

My childhood favourite story was about Winnie the Pooh - and many years later, I feel very nostalgic for an old-fashioned childhood with a teddy bear and a story book.

This glorious, 50th Anniversary, Steiff Winnie the Pooh, celebrates the union with Walt Disney and his acquisition of the rights from A.A. Milne, to the character that is - Winnie the Pooh. Disney created a Pooh to sit with the times, made him more contemporary, adding expressive eyebrows, a full smile, alert wee ears, a more chubby appeal, whilst making that well known, red t-shirt his own. He created an animated Pooh born from the 1960's, one which would live on film forever, starting with the 1966 animated featurette 'Winnie the Pooh and the Honey Tree'.

This magical Pooh is 42cm tall and fully jointed. He has been sewn from a luxurious, yellow blonde mohair with coordinating, wool felt paws. His center seam highlights, his exceptionally rounded tum, whilst his short length, red t-shirt emphasises his love of 'hunny' even more. His adorably cute, tall cupped ears, with his high raised, embroidered eyebrows, glossy eyes, gentle, protruding snout with hand stitched nose and wide smile, add to such a contagiously, fabulous bear.

It is the first time, that the talented artisans at Steiff, have presented us with a 'modern' 1960's version of Pooh, but you have to admit ... he is exceptionally special!.

This beautiful piece is a Worldwide Limited Edition of just 500 Bears and will come to you boxed, with his numbered certificate of authenticity.

Suitable for collectors only, This is NOT a toy

If you would like to read more about the Winnie the Pooh story and it's author AA Milne and illustrator EH Shephard, then the Penguin Books History of Winnie the Pooh is a great read.
